F5 BIG-IP Review

It is the centerpiece of a lot of the solutions that we build

What is our primary use case?

We use it for a number of solutions that we build, mostly for identity and access management control.

How has it helped my organization?

It is the centerpiece of a lot of the solutions that we build, and it has integrated with everything that we have needed it to.

It is the best value for our engineers and architects who know how to use it. It meets the government's requirements every time that we've used it. It is easy for us to keep integrating with our solutions.

What is most valuable?

We have found the consistency of the application always being the way it is supposed to be as its most valuable feature.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We put a lot of stress on the application. It is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is awesome. Our environment is thousands upon thousands of instances in AWS.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was very simple. The main reason that we went this way was the simplicity of buying it there. It is maintained and upgraded for us, and this makes it easy to stay current.

While the licensing is good through the AWS Marketplace, it is more expensive than what you could buy yourself. However, the convenience outweighs the price.
